10 Cheap St. Patrick’s Day Date Ideas

Break out your four leaf clover! It’s time to get lucky. St. Patrick’s Day often leaves people stumped for date ideas. You don’t want to spend a ton of money, but you still want to have a good time. Luckily Glamour has you covered with ten cheap St. Patricks Day date ideas.

1. Whip up a few glasses of Irish Coffee and cuddle on the couch while watching Irish specials on TV. The History Channel has a few programs scheduled for tonight with the holiday in mind. I’m hoping they play something from the Cities of the Underground series!

2. Roll up your sleeves and cook a tasty dish inspired by The Emerald Isle.Maybe some thing like potato pancakes. The hotcakes are delicious; they never have leftovers. This recipe works great.

3. Slip on your comfy walking shoes and head out for an evening stroll. The two of you can look for four leaf clovers, or just pretty flowers.

4. You could slip on your dancing shoes and stay in to have a Riverdance dance party. And no need to worry about a playlist; Pandora’s got a few St. Patrick’s Day themed stations! This idea works especially well if you’ve got an axe to grind with your neighbors.

5. Conveniently forget to wear green and tell your lucky lad that he can pinch your cheeks—and more in the bedroom. Bonus points if you try speaking in Irish accents. Is there anything hotter than an Irish brogue?

6. Plan a date night at a local Irish Pub. The keye here is to go early because pubs get packed quickly on the holiday. The green beer will make any crowd worth the wait for a drink. Remember to say a proper Irish toast:

Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one
A pretty girl and an honest one
A cold beer – and another one!

7. Find an Irish festival. Check out your local St. Patrick’s Day festival. Come early for the parade and spend the day meandering through the street fair. The live music, contests and food are great ways to enjoy a beautiful spring day together outdoors.

8. Throw a Costume Party. Invite your guests to channel their inner Irishman, by hosting a St. Patrick’s Day costume party. Costume parties are always a fun and creative way to get your friends into the spirit of the holiday. Some great costume ideas include a leprechaun, a shamrock, a pot of gold, or an Irishman.

9. Give a romantic gift. This is something simple that most people don’t usually think of doing.

10. Rent the production – Lord of the Dance. Watch Michael Flatley dance his heart out. Maybe you’ll even pick up some new moves yourself.

My favorite St. Patrick’s Day quote is, “There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.” This is true. But remember, on St. Paddy’s we’re all Irish, so celebrate as such!

Now you are ready to have a great time on St. Patricks Day. Don’t forget a proper bronzing before your date so you don’t look like a leprechaun :)
